Welcome (or welcome back) to Fanshawe College for Fall 2005! You've likely found that there's alot of information you need to know, and FATS is here to help you. Look to this regular column for dates, deadlines and directions so you don't wind up with difficulties. Look for FATS at the Welcome Kiosk, too.

As you select your classes and get your life in order, here are some important dates to keep in mind:

September 6 -- This is the first day of classes for most programs

How to avoid line-ups in the Office of the Registrar

Long lines can be frustrating. But how do you get your business done when 13,000 other people want the same things you do? Here are some pointers that may help.

“I just want to come when it isn't so busy.”
Try our extended hours. We're open until 9pm Monday to Thursday, and from 9am to 12:30pm Saturday morning. On Friday, we close at 4pm.

“I just want my student campus card and bus pass.”
Come see us in ‘H' Cafeteria — it'll be faster. Before or after, come see us in E1012. Don't forget your photo ID!

“I just want a part-time course from the continuing education course guide.”
Look up courses and register on line with WebAdvisor. You need your WebAdvisor user name and password, or your student number. You also need to have a valid email address on file with the college, and a valid credit card and expiry date.

“I just want to get my timetable.”
Ask your division. They have your timetable and can also offer you advice about your courses.

“I just want to drop/add/ change a course.”
Get your ‘Course Enrollment Verification Form' at Orientation. Get it signed by your division. They can also process your course drop.

“I just want to make a payment on my fees.”
Make payments with your credit card online with WebAdvisor. You need your WebAdvisor user name and password, or your student number and a valid credit card number and expiry date. We'll email you a receipt.

“I just want to telephone someone.”
If you know the name of the person or office you're calling, dial 452-4430 and you'll be connected directly.

“I just have a quick question.”
Take a ticket from the ticket printer by either door. You only need one ticket, even if you have several things to do. Have a seat -- your number will show up on the display board over the counter. We'll help you as quickly as we can.

“What can I get done at the Registrar's Office?”
We handle fee payments, admitting and registering people in programs, transcripts, grades, part-time courses, apprentices, tax receipts, campus cards, graduation, and all those forms the government wants you to fill out. Sometimes quick questions have long answers. When you come to see us, please bring all the necessary paperwork and photo ID -- it will be faster.

We know lineups will be long. that's why at Orientation we have people at the door to answer quick questions so you can avoid the wait inside, and why we hand out campus cards in H Cafeteria. If all you need is your student campus card, please see us there. Don't forget your photo ID.
